Summary: With a growing evidence base linking nutrition with specific diseases and disorders-including oral disease-and the advent of genomics and proteomics illuminating the response of whole systems to nutrients, it is clear that nutrition will be playing an even more significant role in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease. In Nutrition and Oral Medicine, internationally recognized leaders in dentistry and nutrition review the now ample evidence concerning the effects of diet and its nutrient components on the development, growth, maintenance, prevention, and treatment of the oral cavity. Topics range from the relationship between oral and general health, nutrition and general health, and nutrition and oral health, to select oral and systemic diseases with known nutrition and oral health interfaces. Specific topics, such as the relationship between diet and cancers of the head, neck, and mouth are examined in light of nutritional intervention strategies. Oral and systemic diseases and orofacial pain syndromes are considered in terms of their impact on both nutritional status and the medications and treatments used for the oral cavity. Cutting-edge research issues on the relationship of individual antioxidants, minerals, trace elements, polyphenols, and other nutrient substrates to oral health and disease are covered. Where appropriate, optimal management strategies are also presented. Data-driven and practice-based, Nutrition and Oral Medicine offers benchmark reviews of the many links connecting nutrition and dietary practices to oral diseases and disorders, and constitutes a powerful demonstration that nutrition is all about health and reducing risk of future disease.
